Cannot set up Hyper-V replica woth SSL

Hi,

When setting up SSL Hyper-V Replica, I have always used this guide.

http://blogs.technet.com/b/virtualization/archive/2012/07/10/requesting-hyper-v-replica-certificates-from-an-enterprise-ca.aspx

But on a job I was doing, upon following the guide, I now get the attached errors when setting up Replica with SSL.

Is there any way I can do this?

This can happen when the inf (step 3 in the guide you linked to) was not properly created or was edited improperly. Specifically there is a line in the inf that says " exportable = TRUE

If the certificate was not requested with that line, the private key will not be exportable. You will have to generate a new CSR and submit it to the CA using a corrected inf file.

Thanks for the  reply,

the inf is as follows

Exportable = TRUE; Private key is exportable

The inf used is a copy and paste of the example and the relevant FQDN and DNS names where changed.

Look for typos. Or hidden characters. Either can cause the exportable lone to not work as expected.

Hi All,

I built a VM on our own test server with the same Server 2012 OS with AD CS role enabled and carried out the same steps and got the same results.

Coping and pasting so no spelling mistakes, but checked for them anyway.

Still in the dark!
